Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto slams the EU’s “one-sided” statements on Israel as his European counterparts call for a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians.

“I have a general problem with these European statements on Israel… These are usually very much one-sided, and these statements do not help, especially not under current circumstances, when the tension is so high,” Szijjarto tells AFP in an interview.
